Malaga, Spain
Malaga is the major coastal city of Andalucia and is a genuine and typical Andaluz city with a gritty individualism untouched by tourism and, to a large extent, the passage of time. The Moors occupied the city until the mid-15th century, after which it grew to become one of the foremost merchant centers in the entire Iberian Peninsula. This illustrious past has left its imprint on the historic center, particularly around La Alcazaba, a fortress which dates back to 1065 and is now a fascinating archaeological museum. Also worth a visit is the nearby castle which was rebuilt by the Moors and is today a traditional parador (state hotel) with superb panoramic views.

During the nineteenth century, Malaga was a popular winter resort for the wealthy famed for its elegance and sophistication. The impressive park on Calle Alameda dates back to this era and is recognized as being one of the most celebrated botanical collections in Europe. Pablo Picasso is the city’s famous son, and there are several galleries showing his work, including the 16th century Museum of Fine Arts, adjacent to the Cathedral. His birthplace in Plaza Merced is today an archive of his life and works and open to the public - free of charge. Málaga's main theater is the Theatro Cervantes, where Antonio Banderas still visits.

As well as being a cultural center, Malaga is also a great place to eat out. The Malagueños love their food and the bars and restaurants here are where the real social life takes place. The choice is unlimited and, on the whole, reasonable, with some bars offering a menu of the day with bread and wine for as little as 700 pesetas. Tapas, small portions of many different dishes is an Andalusian tradition and a wonderfully inexpensive way to try a variety of local food. The best known local fare in Malaga is pescaito frito, an assortment of fried fish, including small sardines and red mullet, best washed down with a glass of ice cold fino at one of the many old fashioned bodegas in town. But it is El Palo, to the east of the city which is a typical fisherman’s village and the place to go if you want that veritable ‘catch of the day’ freshness. Try a tapas and a glass of Malaga wine at Malaga's oldest tapas bar called 'Antigua Casa de la Guardia'. Keep to the north side of the Alameda and find no. 16. Malaga is always closed for the siesta period, so this is a perfect time for a long relaxing lunch.

These days, Malaga prides itself on being a modern city with the heart of commerce dominated by Calle Larios which is the local Bond Street equivalent. This is the recommended place to start exploring the city as it is surrounded by attractive small streets and plazas, as well as the magnificent Renaissance cathedral which offers daily guided tours. Garden lovers won't be disappointed in Malaga either. In the center of the city is the beautiful Alameda Gardens, and just outside on the way to Antequera one finds the extensive Jardines de la Concepcion. Málaga airport is one of the major airports in Spain due to the number of tourist arrivals on charter flights from Northern Europe using Malaga airport as a gateway to the Costa del Sol.

Cadiz, Spain
Cadiz, called "the cup of silver," takes its name from the silvery harbor and sparkling atmosphere. It is almost African in appearance - its streets are lined with plam trees, its churches topped with domed coppolas, and its white houses shaded by orange trees.

Cádiz is the most southern province of the Iberian Peninsula. It is extremely rich in natural beauty and some of the most important Natural Parks of Spain and Europe are found here: Sierra de Grazalema and los Alcoronocales. Both are rich in flora and fauna, including species under threat of exinction. Many birds find here their resting and feeding place just after or before making the jump from or to Africa.

Take a tour to Seville, the irresistable capital and cultural center of Andalusia with its colorful and festive lifestyle.

Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Spain
Las Palmas is the capital, together with Santa Cruz, and the most populous city in the Canary Islands. It enjoys a subtropical climate, with mild to warm temperatures predominating throughout the year. The Port of Las Palmas is not only the largest port of the Canary Islands, but also the most important port in the Mid-Atlantic, with the most traffic at the crossroads between Europe, Africa and America. It is one of the main ports of Spain. The city has great beaches, including Las Canteras, Las Alcaravaneras, la Laja, and Confital.

The city was founded in 1478 by Juan Rejón, head of the invading Castilian army, before engaging in war with the local aboriginal people of the Canary Islands, known as Guanches. In 1492, Christopher Columbus anchored in the Port of Las Palmas, spending time on the island before sailing to America, and stopped there again on the way back to Spain. Today, a museum is named after him - Casa Colón - in the Vegueta area of the city.

The historic district of Vegueta has regained great popularity as the meeting place of choice for young people on weekends, who fill its bars and discos. In the port area there are also many bars and nightclubs, particularly in the vicinity of Santa Catalina. During the Carnival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, usually between January and February, you can enjoy popular Mogollon (dances) and galas of Franco and the drag queen.
